The White Devil
About The White Devil
Inspired by bizarre real-life events from Renaissance Italy, John Webster conjures an extraordinary tale of hypocrisy, seduction and revenge. In Annie Ryan's bold take on the original, her cast of villains, victims and conspirators move through the dark spaces between reality and nightmares, creating scandal and destruction at every shadowy turn.
Cloaked in the hallucinatory half-light of the Italian court, the Duke of Brachiano murders his wife in order to possess another woman, triggering a cycle of brutality, deceit and insanity that shatters family bonds and moral codes.
